BidFan.com Review Is it a Scam

Is it just me or does the dailydigestreports.com/tech/ report website look similar to a news website? for the record it’s not a real news website in fact its nothing more than an advertorial it actually says this at the very top of the dailydigestreports.com website, so in this instance is fair to say that the character “Julie” is nothing more than fictitious made up person used to help promote in this instance Bidfan.com. Also for the record at the bottom of the  www.dailydigestreports.com/tech/ website it currently says the following…

For the record the time in which i am writing this post is November 2010 so depending on when you read this post things may have or may not have changed. All this said I ask the question is Bidfan.com a scam. Very weird thing happened to me while i was reviewing this penny auction website. I would like other people to correct me if i am wrong on this issue using the comment section below. Ok i clicked the refresh button about 10 times on bidfan.com’s website and i watched the bidding war. First thing i have to mention is that i was watching the “Apple Mac Pro” each and every time i refreshed the page the “apple mac book pro was being sold for nothing more than $7.00.

BidFan.com Is it a Scam you be the judge

That being said i signed up no i did not enter my credit card information but i did however notice something interesting. In the members area i click the section titled “just ended” to look to see see if all the apple Mac Pro winners added up. Low and behold i couldn’t find a single Apple Mac Pro winner. I did however find a bunch of free credit winners there’s pages and pages of those. This brings me to another point before you sign up for any penny auction website make sure you read the terms and conditions. below is a preview of Bidfan.com’s terms and conditions

===============

Gift cards have a $4.99 shipping and handling fee and bid packs have $2.00 processing fee lol.

Understanding Penny Auction Websites

First thing to keep note of is bidding at a penny auction ain’t cheap although the bid war prices move up 1 cent that doesn’t mean you or the person that is competing with you is being charged one cent. Secondly bids are non refundable Bidfan.com compares itself to eBay well last time i checked it doesn’t cost people money to BID at eBay. Only the winner has to pay for the price of their items at eBay.com. At BidFan.com every single bidder pays for the price of the item.

Would I call penny auction websites gambling?

I look at penny auctions as mixture of gambling and an online chuck e cheese for adults. I personally feel as though the visual presentation of penny auction websites is what gets people to sign up. In the instance of Bidfan.com i couldn’t find a single Apple Mac pro winner in the members area yet if i refresh their front page “apparently” someone is winning one every single minute. This brings me to my next fear that the game is rigged after the information I presented above am I wrong for thinking this??? Don’t let my opinion stop you from signing up with Bidfan.com just don’t say i didn’t warn you.
